Productive Pressure Badass Leader

Want a Better Business? Learn to Lead Like a Badass.

One of the most impactful things you can do to escape Owner Overload is to become a better leader.

Be honest: do any of these sound familiar?

🤔 You’re avoiding hard problems and not having the tough conversations.

🤔 You’re doing everything yourself instead of sharing the load.

🤔 You’re procrastinating on making decisions.

Transforming your business requires claiming your role as the leader of the company.

Being a “Badass Leader” comes from channelling your business owner identity and leading from the best part of you.

When you become a better leader, EVERYTHING gets better in your business.

Let’s look at what it means to lead…like a badass.

We’ll start here:

Yesterday’s leadership won’t work for today’s professionals.

The old-fashioned hierarchy is broken.

So is hustle culture.

Along with it?

The idea of “paying your dues” before you’re able to reap the rewards.

If you’re part of my generation, you may be trapped by this exact mindset!

Perhaps you’re still “paying dues” long past when “reward time” should have come. (This was me a few years ago.)

Millennials and younger generations look at what the leaders in organizations do – and how they live – and they don’t want any part of it.

Which is one of the reasons why – also like me – you may be feeling disappointed that the younger professionals in your business don’t seem interested in buying into the business or even being promoted into a leadership role.

The solution is to lead like a badass.

What does it mean to lead like a badass?

It begins with leading by example.

Demonstrating how *awesome* it is to lead the business by turning that leadership role into something you enjoy and thrive in.

What if your leadership role looked like this:

🌟 Embracing work/life integration. Taking weekends off. Taking personal days. Taking extended vacations.

🌟 Gifting your staff with responsibility. Letting them feel purposeful and important – and enabling them to make a real contribution.

🌟 Flipping the hierarchy from being the person who “tells everyone what to do” and “has the answers for everything” and “shoulders ALL the responsibility” – to the person who coaches and supports others to do THEIR best work.

This creates a winning situation for everyone.

Your team grows and thrives and becomes more capable.

You get to set down the burden of carrying all the responsibility.
